Advancing Excellence - The Campaign for the University of Missouri-Rolla  


Dear members of the School of Mines and Metallurgy Alumni Academy,

I am looking forward to seeing all of you on campus during the Spring Leadership Weekend, April 19 through 21.  In addition to our Academy meeting and banquet, I want to make you aware of another important and significant activity scheduled that weekend; the public launch celebration of our Advancing Excellence Campaign.  Please mark your calendars to attend the celebration in Leach Theatre of Castleman Hall, 3:30 p.m. Thursday, April 19. 

Chancellor Carney and the Advancing Excellence Leadership Team will lead the celebration as we publicly launch our campaign to propel the future of UMR.  You are invited to celebrate all the ways UMR has made its mark on the world and how you can make your mark on the future of UMR.
